Physical punishment: improving consistency and protection, 30/03/10 [E/NI/S/W]

This report for the Department for Children, Schools and Families looks into physical punishment in various settings and aims to determine if this is an area in which change is needed in order to strengthen the safeguards for children.

Physical punishment is prohibited in all maintained and full-time independent schools, in children’s homes, in local authority foster homes and early years provision; although the prohibitions have different enforcement mechanisms.

For full details see Physical punishment: improving consistency and protection which is available from the Department for Children, Schools and Families website.
